CHICAGO (AP) -- The mustache is making a comeback -- and Jeff Gordon believes he is, too.

The four-time NASCAR champion grabbed the final spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship away from Kyle Busch with a vintage performance and will try to end his long "Drive for Five," starting Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway.

Gordon, once the dominant driver in the sport, hasn't claimed a series title since 2001. It's fair to say he's feeling just a little rejuvenated after his dramatic performance at Richmond last weekend.

Gordon came in trailing Busch by 12 points and beat him by three, coming on strong after falling a lap behind to finish second in a race hampered by rain.

Now that he's made the Chase, he is keeping his promise to bring back his mustache from his early days in the Sprint Cup Series. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
